Welcome to Crystal Ridge, a peaceful location where you can enjoy peace and privacy.

Campers can fish, swim, bird watch or just relax by the water and watch the cows grazing around the property. 

Nearby you'll find Mount Spec, Paluma Range National Park straddles the summit and escarpment of the Paluma Range, rising 1,000m above the Big Crystal Creek floodplain. This is the most southerly national park in the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area.

Located approximately 45 minutes north of Townsville on the Bruce Highway, Mutarnee is a small peaceful hamlet nestled on the banks of beautiful Crystal Creek. At the local caravan park there's a small shop and service station and just a minute down the road you'll find the Crystal Creek boat ramp. 

There is great bushwalks in the area and place to mountain bike.

Any camping set up is welcome to pull up on the flat, grassy site.

You are welcome to bring your pet, but please ensure they are kept on a leash and under control.

Had an awesome stay! We booked both sites so was very private. Totally enjoyed having the creek a stones throw away. We’re in and out of the water the whole time. The cattle were very friendly. Am looking forward to staying again

Great little find. Right on the river bank. Water was crystal clear. Great concrete slab with astroturf to set up around.
Fire pits dotted around the 2 camping areas. Would be great for a group booking.
2wd access, very easy to find, instructions were great and host quick to respond.

Its location to cardwell and Townsville make it a great little stop over place heading up or down the coast or for a weekend getaway.

We will definitely stay again.

Amazing campsite - we booked both for 3 families and had the area to ourselves. Exactly as described and will be back. Do yourself a favor and book extra days

Awesome spot relaxing by the water. Only a short distance from Townsville. We had 4 caravans on our site. Would definitely recommend this campsite.

Great location next to the creek. We had site 2 which had quite a few river rocks throughout which made it difficult to pitch out our swags & awnings.
Site 1 would definitely be the best of the 2 with a nice grassy area.
On arrival the bin was full & with the addition of our rubbish, it was very full. My concern was the crows got into the rubbish on the last day. I hope they didn’t make a big mess after we left.
I would definitely be back if we manage to book site 1.

Crystal Creek a beautiful quiet spot beside a wide fresh water creek great for a refreshing swim for us & the dogs. Make sure you take fire wood as there is not much around to forage for.

It was the best. Private, peaceful and beautiful. Water was crysal clear, camp was tidy and the turfed slab was perfect for level camping and clean feet. Kids swam and kayaked the whole time.
